Did the defendant use a gun? The philosophical foundations and practical consequences of applying corpus analysis in legal interpretation

The Reading Centre for Cognition Research (RCCR) is delighted to announce this new 2 year project: Did the defendant use a gun? The philosophical foundations and practical consequences of applying corpus analysis in legal interpretation.

This project will explore attempts to use the techniques of corpus linguistics to guide interpretation of legally contested terms (a fuller project overview is included below). We are very keen to hear from any University of Reading researchers (staff or postgraduate students) who might be interested in these issues. Please contact the PI, Nat Hansen (n.d.hansen@reading.ac.uk) if you would like to discuss the project further.

The first (team-building) project meeting will take place virtually (on Teams) at:

Thursday, Nov 4, from 3-4pm

All are welcome.
